If your talking about a networked, production application then put access away and forget about it. USE MSSQL

Access is great for single users or small groups on a LAN where you can store the .mdb or .accdb file on a network share. A step up in performance is SQLite or MS SQL Server Compact Edition, both of which are single files on a network share - easy to administer. The next step up is MS SQL Server Express, but now you need a Windows Server to host it. Finally, as Neilsr has suggested, if you are running a networked, production application with more than 5-10 users, you need to go all the way to MS SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, etc.

The average business loses $13.5M per year to ineffective training (per 1,000 employees). Keep ahead of the competition and combine in-person quality with online cost and flexibility by training with Linux Academy.

I agree with Neilsr. Only reason to use Access would be if you were running something small on one computer and didn't want to mess with installing SQL Server.

Give Neilsr the points, but figured I'd add some additional info to the answer.
